    First the longhorn network, now THIS!?!?!

    Now they have their own gatorade:

    Texas A&M, Texas get own Gatorades - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    This is the last straw. Tell me this isn't a competitive advantage?



    Also, they said the aggieade was going to be maroon...I woulda suggested milky-white from a mason jar.

    Was going to make comment on aggieade, but not appropriate.

    I'm convinced that someone in the Texas team involved in this at some point said:

    "You know, it's probably easier for you guys if you do an aTm version as well. If not, they're gonna *****. They'll start hollerin' about how Texas has everything, and pretty soon yer gonna have slightly effeminate dudes in blue overalls with puff paints on them outside your offices hollering about how they're coming to "saw off" the arms to your office chairs or something. Seriously, design a label, you can just slap it on the strawberry stuff anyway."

    That's how the aggie version came about.

    Who is going to want to drink a gatorade that is the color of a dehydrated runners urine?

    Stealing these line from the comments on the ESPN article...

    Does the A&M bottle make you cramp up when your opponent goes no-huddle?

    Will A&M's version be a cloudy white color and come in mason jars?

    Hey, I drink a beverage that is the color of dehydrated Hawkeye football players' urine. I call it "Diet Pepsi."

    The Aggie product was cheap to make, but in short supply.
